McConnell Blasts Biden’s ‘Profoundly Unpresidential’ Rant: He Propagandized ‘Against His Own Country’

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) slammed President Joe Biden in a speech from the Senate floor on Wednesday for Biden’s widely criticized speech from yesterday, saying that it was so “profoundly unpresidential” that it would have made Russian propaganda “blush.”

“Twelve months ago, a newly-inaugurated President Biden stood on the West Front of the Capitol and here’s what he had to say: ‘My whole soul is in this: bringing America together, uniting our people, and uniting our nation,’” McConnell said. “Yesterday, the very same man delivered a deliberately divisive speech that was designed to pull our country farther apart.”

“Twelve months ago, this President said we should ‘see each other not as adversaries, but as neighbors.’ Yesterday, he called millions of Americans his domestic ‘enemies,’” McConnell continued. “Twelve months ago, this President said that ‘disagreement must not lead to disunion.’ But, yesterday, he invoked the bloody disunion of the Civil War, the Civil War, to demonize Americans who disagree with him. He compared a bipartisan majority of Senators to literal traitors. How profoundly, profoundly unpresidential.”

McConnell said that as Biden gave the speech, he “did not recognize the man at the podium yesterday.”
